CKB on the Trinity


There is something here for us to learn and to imitate. If you are bent on treating the doctrine of the Trinity as a piece of metaphysics, then I shall not be surprised if you find it incredible or if it be credible, irrelevant, if you insist on divorcing it from practical life. if you insist upon regarding it as a toy for theologians, then inevitably it will never mean anything to you. To do this is a mistake. The doctrine of the Trinity is not a burden that the intelligent person has to put up with if he is to be a Christian. It is the keystone of the faith, and the most glorious possession of the Church— C.K. Barrett
